As a board certified expert in general surgery, Dr. Elijah Mobley is known across the High Desert region for his surgical precision as well as his caring, understanding bedside manner. This is often the exact combination that women need when it comes to finding a surgeon to perform their breast surgery.

- Breast cancer surgical treatment
Patients should note that the breasts are considered to be the upper ventral region of the torso, and female breasts contain mammary glands. These glands create breast milk, allowing women to feed their infant children. Male breast tissue and female breast tissue are one in the same, except during puberty an increase in estrogen allows the female breasts to complete their production and become more prominent. While breast cancer is much more common in women than in men, it is still possible for men to be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Those who have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer should understand the importance of working with a qualified cancer care treatment team. In addition to working with Dr. Mobley as a surgeon, patients will also have a radiation oncology expert, as well as a medical oncology expert, working with them in order to create a treatment plan that addresses their specific issues. These are the various components that are needed to create a well-rounded plan for all patients who are battling breast cancer.
